So when was the last time you wrote a postcard?
It used to be "de rigueur" to send a postcard from abroad, when vacationing.
Children looked forward to getting these cards for their scenic panoramas and exotic stamps.
I haven't sent a postcard in years. But all that might change because of a new app "TouchNote."
Mailing a postcard is easy because all you do is:
1. select an image from your photos
2. write a caption
3. add an address from your contacts
4. press send.
Postage is free and the whole thing will set you back $2.99.
The more postcards you send, the less it costs.
